Duke Raleigh Hospital has announced the completion of its South Pavilion, an extension of the existing hospital (the North Pavilion). The multi-million dollar project allows Duke Raleigh Hospital to make the necessary advancements for its patients, their loved ones, and each other as the community grows and its health needs evolve. When the more than 210,000 square foot South Pavilion opens to its first inpatients on July 12, it will include:
- 92 private inpatient rooms, including 28 ICU and 64 acute care
- 9 state of the art operating rooms with an expanded sterile processing department
- Family Waiting Areas overlooking Wake Forest Road on each inpatient floor.
- An outdoor courtyard with dining areas and a walking path that connects to the Surgical Services waiting area and the new cafe.
- A new kitchen and cafe offering a variety of culinary flavors and seating for close to 200 guests
- Artwork by regional artists
“The newly completed South Pavilion has added space, not just for innovative care, but more room for families to be involved in the process of care during their stay here,” said Leigh Bleecker, interim president, Duke Raleigh Hospital. “The modern, welcoming look of the South Pavilion was a key part of the design. The building really allows Duke Raleigh Hospital to create a healing space for our community that embraces all the ways in which our mind, body, and spirit can be restored.”
Duke Raleigh Hospital will host a virtual grand opening ceremony for the new "South Pavilion" from 1 to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 8. All members of the community are invited to join the ceremony.
